Another Port Huron wintry scene thanks to Wednesday's storm.


A record March snowfall for the metro Detroit area Wednesday caused havoc on the roads for drivers across southeast Michigan, with several accidents noted in the local area and I-94 shut down for a jackknifed semi. Yesterday's snow and wind saw several local school districts in St. Clair, Macomb and Sanilac counties either closing up or cancelling their classes, with meteorologists at the National Weather Service saying nearly 7-inches of snow were recorded for the metro Detroit area, with the St. Clair County Sheriff's Office issuing a warning mid-day Wednesday for motorists to stay off the roads if at all possible.  Sheriff Tim Donnellon says from the time the storm began early yesterday morning up until 2pm there were 29 reports of vehicles in the ditch, 25 property damage accidents and 7 personal injury accidents.  One accident yesterday afternoon happened along eastbound Interstate 94 at the Fred Moore Highway with a semi truck that jackknifed, shutting down the roadway for a few hours. National Weather Service Forecasters says no additional precipitation is expected for the rest of the week, but daytime temperatures will be going for a bit of a roller coaster ride for the next several days.  Today's (Thursday) expected high will see us reaching only 20-degrees, with Friday seeing a high of 42 degrees.  Then Saturday it's up to 34, and Sunday we only get up to 23 degrees.  And spring, though it feels like it's months away, will officially arrive one week from today. Most school districts had to shut down again Thursday primarily due to clogged secondary roads. Under consideration by many are adding days to the school year to make up time lost due to snow days.
